Set on a working farm, this beautiful barn offers a rural escape in the stunning Peak District hills, surrounded by public footpaths and cycle trails, and close to Bakewell.

A lovingly restored barn conversion surrounded by lush foliage located on a working farm near Over Haddon; this rural hideaway is the perfect base for a small family exploring the Peak District with a couple of waggy-tailed friends in tow. Venture through the 105-acre grounds of Chatsworth House and soak in the wonderful arboretum and rock garden, then curl up in front of the crackling wood burner with post-adventure snacks.

This charming property boasts an inviting country interior with warm wood and leather accents, a brickwork fireplace, and exposed ceiling beams. Step through the stable door into the kitchen/diner where the resident chef can prepare a hearty feast overlooking the leafy garden. Perch at the dining table and plan out the perfect holiday itinerary, then gather the pack and tuck into a well-earned supper. Retreat to the comfortable lounge to curl up on the plush sofas and bask in the warm glow of the wood burner as you enjoy a movie or dive into a family board game. Step up onto the en-suite king-size room with a traditional wrought iron bedframe and a welcoming twin room with quirky soft furnishings. Lounge on the bistro set with your morning coffee in the shared courtyard, soak in the surrounding views from the patio or steal a moment of peace in the pretty summer house.

Explore the nearby town of Bakewell and stroll by the local shops and galleries then treat yourself to an iconic baked pudding, within 1 mile. Outdoor enthusiasts will adore trekking and cave spotting along the emerald valleys on the Lathkill Dale Walk, 5 miles. Hop into a cable car and ascend to the hilltop park at the Heights of Abraham and scope out the mysterious caverns, 12 miles.
